@philosophytweet: A reminder of philosophy’s embarrassing failure, after over 2000 years, to settle any of its central issues.
@rudivanetteger: The goal of philosophy is not to provide definite answers, but to provide reasons for individual choices, which it does.
@svarricc: Philosophy is a process not a product. Assess results for value based on the quality of their reasoning.
@rudivanetteger: if you equate philosophy to process of reasoning, does that not reduce philosophy to rhetoric, processing the facts of science?
@svarricc: I never said reasoning had to based on science - although scientific methodology is a popular form.
@rudivanetteger: I spoke of philosophical method: rhetorics and possibly logic, and of scientific results. To me philosophy as process is empty
@svarricc: A process is necessarily empty. Its a form for perspective and dialogue but needs content.
@rudivanetteger: Does philosophy provide its own content? Or who does?
@svarricc: We provide content. We do philosophy. It does not exist without us, and is only as effective as the craftsman who uses it.
